- 1/2 pound bacon
- 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup beef broth
- 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Pre-heat the oven to 350°f and line a baking sheet with foil.
In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain, reserving the grease. Let the bacon cool slightly, then crumble.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal and crumbled bacon. In a large measuring cup, stir together 1 1/3 cups warm water and the broth and pour into the dry ingredients. Add the EVOO and stir together to form a loose dough. Knead on a work surface until smooth.
Divide the dough into balls of the appropriate size for your dog (about 1 inch for large dogs and 1/2 inch for small dogs) and set on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with the reserved bacon grease. Bake until firm to the touch, 35-45 minutes. Let cool completely.
